Trump stands alone in defending American values and beliefs

Washington -- Many Americans, after they have been in Washington, D.C., for a few years, become less fervent about their beliefs. President Donald Trump has become more fervent about the things he believes. After this past weekend and Donald's solemnly expressed indignation about the shredding of our shared values and beliefs, he is being...Read more

The professor's war against truth

Washington -- Here we are, halfway through 2020, and what is the latest finding on the achievements of President Ronald Reagan in office? Well, they come from an Oxford University professor emeritus of politics, so they have a great deal of heft behind them. The professor is one Archie Brown, and he says ... Well, he says the same thing that ...Read more

America is welcoming in a new facist regime

Washington -- Now the mob is planning to tear down the statue of Theodore Roosevelt, who, may I add, was one of the original progressives. Take a look in an American history book, if you can find one. The mayor of the fated city of New York, Bill de Blasio, has already approved Teddy's removal. Au revoir, Teddy, you will soon rest in the dustbin...Read more

The mainstream media continues to cook up designer fake news

Washington -- I see the media is still banging on about President Donald Trump's June 1 visit to the boarded-up and burned-out St. John's Episcopal Church across from the White House. By the way, did you ever wonder what provoked the "peaceful" demonstrators to start a fire in the church's basement? Was it a theological dispute? Was it meant in ...Read more

There's more than one mad dog in Washington

Washington -- One of the most alarming aspects of the present fevers is the utterance of total untruths by notables in high places. Do they not know what the truth is? Or do they not care about the truth? Do they believe their notoriety will overcome a totally erroneous statement?

For instance, consider Gen. James Mattis' statement in The ...Read more

It will take more than just money to fix society

Washington -- Dan Flynn, a writer in his fifties, called me the other day and asked how the violence of the past week in all major cities across America, with its attendant death, destruction and riot, had compared with the 1968 death, destruction and riot occasioned by the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. I thought for a second and ...Read more

Avoid the war of the masks by staying home

Washington -- I see a war has broken out even as we talk of opening up our states' economies. Perhaps I am overly sensitive, but I get the feeling there is serious disagreement between those who insist on covering their bodies to prevent the spread of the Wuhan virus and those who are taking their chances. The chance-takers wear no masks, no ...Read more

Who should be indicted for leaking the Flynn-Kislyac call?

Washington -- Let us turn to the controversy surrounding Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump's first choice for national security advisor. Flynn was prosecuted and found guilty of lying to the FBI years ago, and, as the wheels of justice grind slowly in the United States, after much expense to both the government and to Flynn, he was about to ...Read more

Biden carrying out America's first basement campaign

Washington -- Americans know less and less history these days, which is a good thing for our candidates running for office, either high office or low office. One of the reasons Americans, when polled, say Barack Obama was a great president is that few Americans can remember any president other than Obama. Some remember President George W. Bush, ...Read more

In defense of Joe (except not really)

Washington -- Where did Sleepy Joe go wrong? Remember what a champion of women, or at least of Democratic women, he was? Remember the role he played in the Violence Against Women Act? Recall, if you will, how he kissed the Democratic ladies affectionately and smelled their hair, at least until a group of indignant Democratic women publicly ...Read more

To win, Trump needs to maul the Chinese, the Democrats, and Biden

Washington -- What tack will President Donald Trump have to take to ensure that he will not have to employ moving vans after Election Day this autumn? He has to win a majority among the Republicans and the independents, and it would be nice if he picked up a few Democratic voters. You know, the Democrats who luxuriated in the Trump economy until...Read more

A call for freedom, a fear of unemployment

Washington -- There is a growing revolt against the imposition of police state government on the Land of the Free. In Michigan, the cry for freedom has been heard as automobiles and pickup trucks flying the Stars and Stripes circle the state capitol. One intrepid reporter even spotted the Stars and Bars of the Confederacy -- though I have ...Read more
